Kuzhi Paniyaram prepared with thinai flour. Thinai flour normally tastes good and used to prepare tasty ladoo, kheer,paal kozhukatai etc. You can get thinai flour in super markets as well. If you want to prepare flour at home just roast thinai rice in a pan till golden brown add it in a mixie and grind till smooth. You can sieve flour using a sifter(flour filter). Or soak rice for preparing rice flour and you can grind in a mill.
We prepare this occassionally as it takes some time to cook. Kerala style authentic kuzhi Paniyaram check out the step by step method. It was soft and sweet. Everyone enjoyed the taste and surprisingly my daughter tasted this.
